Rest of the Day: Google Adds Mobile Comments to Docs, Sheets, and Slides
Google is taking a small step towards better collaboration on its mobile productivity suite, Firefox is aggressively offering new support for notifications, Apple is updating Snow Leopard (for real!), And more in today’s leftovers.
- Mozilla Firefox can now send push notifications directly to your desktop . The latest update to Firefox 44 adds support for website notifications even if they are not open in your browser. [Mozilla via The Next Web ]
- Today, Google has added mobile comments to its Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps , and has added an easy way to tag people in comments. See their cake demo below. You can also comment on documents that do not relate to cakes, although I would not encourage that. [Google Docs Blog]
- Surprise! Apple just released a small update to Snow Leopard, the first patch in years . The goal of the update is to ensure compatibility with the Mac App Store, or, as Ars Technica puts it, “Apple is updating Snow Leopard so you can continue to update from Snow Leopard.” [Ars Technica]
- Also, iOS 9.3 beta 2, which is now publicly available for testing, falls from the Apple tree. Of course, nothing radical compared to the previous beta 9.3, but now you can control Night Shift mode from the control center. [9to5Mac]
- Facebook reaction emojis are coming in the next few weeks. Reaction buttons have been testing in markets outside of the US for some time now and will reportedly be launching soon, according to Bloomberg Business’s extensive button design report. I wouldn’t say I like this idea, but I like : simple_smile: it. [Bloomberg Business]
- Malwarebytes has a new tool to keep people safe from ransomware . Ransomware that literally encrypts your data until you pay the ransom to an attacker is not a common or common threat, but it exists. [The Next Web]
